According to him, “I’m far, far ahead of other contestants in this race, I’m sure of total victory. I’m a detrabilised Nigerian who spent the greater part of my life in the South-South and the northern part of the the country.

“Apart from this, I’m not a controversial politician,I have been a member of the party from the beginning and I have never been associated with any other political party.

“I’m for the unity of the party, I have all it will take to turn the fortunes of the party around ahead of the 2019 general election when our great party is expected to take over again at the centre. To turn PDP around is not a tea party, but a great task that needs tested, trusted and great experience like me to handle.

“With my interactions with the delegates from the various zones I visited , I discovered that they are yearning for my candidature, all the states wanted me and promised to deliver their votes to en masse  to Professor Adedoja based on my experience.”
